This article has been corrected. The five commissioner positions for San Juan County Hospital District #3 are listed on the county's election website along with the rest of the positions up for election in 2018.   Those five positions were filled in the April 24, 2018 election. We apologize for our error of including those five positions in the list posted earlier.
